The Logical Approach


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

I approach religion the same way I approach business, relationships, and politics.  With logic.  We live in an age where Muslims treat Islam like a sacralised fable, and resort to superstition.  They believe what they want to believe because somebody said so, and without considered exploration of the text, the commentaries of the text, and doctrine.  When they encounter an unfamiliar opinion, they resort to spiritual blackmail: “We will find out on the Day of Judgement.”

This is the talk of children, and the ignorant.  On the Day of Judgement, these would be the least of our concerns.  It is petty to bring the disagreements of mortals before the Divine, on issues of the religious sciences, since it would be irrelevant then.  People have not thought this through.  The religious sciences should not be ruled by emotion or intellectual tribalism.  Spiritual blackmail, and “threats” of invocations to Allah (s.w.t.), are a sure sign that the other side has no cogent argument to refute the contention.  When speaking of the Divine, it is a lack of manners to complain to the Divine.  Such people are a waste of time.  There is only the intent for the truth of the matter.  Everything else is a distraction.
